Unleash the Artist in You – in Your Living Room
There’s an artist in everyone, or so many would say. The aspiring artists would totally agree and the genius and the learned in the craft, thankfully, would be kind and optimistic.
This is easily understandable; after all, everyone has, at some point in time and for one reason or another, donned the painter’s cap and created their own masterpieces.
That’s why it’s no wonder when we get the urge to be artistic even for awhile. In case you’re into this mood and you’re thinking what to do now, this one’s for you.
Why not start with your very own living room? Make this part of your home your own masterpiece and make every guest’s visit, every tea party, every movie marathon you’ll have as fabulous as the Mona Lisa.
Here are some simple things you may do:
- Deck the Walls – If you can draw well, you may draw or paint landscapes or portraits and hang them on the walls. To complement the wallpaper, you may draw on various media, such as brown paper, cardboard, onion paper, whichever works for you. If drawing isn’t your cup of tea, you may surf the web for photos that you like and have them printed and hung on the wall.
- Origami – This one’s pretty nice, but a little tricky too. You may check out manuals on how to create these beautiful, delicate paper creations. Works best as stand-alone on flat surfaces; for example, a flock of pink and white swans resting on your center table would be lovely.
- Statuettes – If you’ve got some nice statuettes or figurines or toys, you may choose to display them on, say, a particular wall or side of the house just to entice a particular theme. Makes the viewer feel as if he/she is on a museum.
- Make your own carpet – If you’ve got scrap cloths, why not make your own carpet? Dye them bright or dye them dark, depending on the mood you want to convey. Just make sure they’re clean and they should be okay.
- Rearrange the furniture – Play interior designer for a day. That should be fun, mix and match the tables and sofa sets and the other appliances. Add in plants, pebbles, flowers for a touch of nature.
To sum it up, just do what you feel like doing. That’s how you become an artist!
